New Mileage Rate
The IRS has published a new mileage reimbursement rate for the use of personal vehicles in conducting business purpose travel. Effective January 1, 2019, the standard mileage rate increases to 58 cents/mile and the moving rate increases to 20 cents/mile. The AU Travel Policy will be revised to reflect this new rate.

PBS Hosts Preferred Vendor Show
Procurement & Business Services held its annual "Preferred Vendor Show" on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at the Auburn University Hotel and Conference Center. Approximately 30 vendors were in attendance for the show. This event provided the opportunity for staff and faculty members to meet with the University's vendors in a casual environment and view current product offerings and services available through the contracts.

AU Vendor Center
Vendors and independent contractors should use the AU Vendor Center to self report commodities that they offer, request to be added to the AU and/or AUM bid lists, offer information on their SBA status, and register for our payment direct deposit service. (AU/AUM/ACES students and employees should NOT register via the Vendor Center.)
